Journey with them through the year. Read about the history that formed these two islands. Learn about the Maori and their traditions that are still alive.

About Kristen Faber
Kristen was born in a mid-size town in Michigan-not too big and not too small. Her parents still live in the house where she grew up. People often ask her, "How can you leave your family and move around the world?" First, she attributes this to the stability she had growing up. Second, she feels she is not alone on this journey. Together with her husband and kids, they explore the world. They have our own language, their own experiences. New Zealand was just the beginning.
